When is the unemployment benefits clock restarted after a second job and subsequent lay-off fromthe second job

by Jon

I was laid off from my job of 3 years and 14 months later rehired at the same job. Now six months later there is a serious threat that I will be laid off again due to lack of work. Am I eligible for 18 months of unemployment benefits or does it pick up where I left off?


I'm not going to be able to answer you.

Sorry .. I had this long explanation as to what I think your problem might be, but when I reread it .. I said .. That's one of the stupidest things you've ever written Chris.

My suggestion is to call the EDD and ask them if you will be able to collect on any remaining extension balance .. if you have one.

If they tell you no, ask them if CA's new "alternative base period has gone into effect yet and if it has .. ask them which qualifying formula would be used .. the new claim, or the 2nd benefit year formula.

If you need help figuring it out after that .. email me .. because I feel bad I couldn't help you with this question.
